Non-Standard Equipment Purchases
Non-Standard/Non-Supported Equipment Request Form (NSERF) and Process
This District has begun a new process for purchasing Non-Standard/Non-Supported Equipment. The change includes the use of the Non-Standard/Non-Supported Equipment Request Form (NSERF).
Please note: There are many Standard items available in the on-line catalog. Please review the catalog to assure there is not a Standard item that will meet the functional requirements.
New form requires the requestor to complete and submit to the Operations Manager (OM)
- OM certifies that the building as is can support the item and that contractor work will not be required to install or operate equipment
- Once approved by OM, requestor creates a Shopping Cart with the form attached as a PDF
- Shopping Carts will be rejected back to end user if completed form is not attached
Approvals will be through workflow in the SAP system
- Administrators will receive the Shopping Carts in their Approval in-box
- Approvals will continue in the system
- Rejections will be sent to end user with comments in Approval Notes
Additional costs will be incurred with non-standard orders. The requestor acknowledges and understands:
- The District will not provide support for non-standard items. The cost of training, extended warranties, maintenance, or service contracts may be required and will be the responsibility of the requestor.
- The District will not provide funding for supplies, accessories, or replacement units for non-standard items.
- The facility and building infrastructure must be able to support the non-standard item. If modifications to the building are needed, please use the PAF process in lieu of this process.
